Learn how to paint on glass...Joan will demonstrate several techniques (they're SUPER simple!), then you get to paint 6 wine glasses any style you'd like. You take them home, let them dry 24 hours, then bake in your oven for 40 minutes and now they're DISHWASHER SAFE! This paint works on ceramic pieces too! Think Home Goods! Think inexpensive, amazing holiday gifts! Joan will hold an Open Studio Workshop in October using this great paint - you bring the containers and she provides the supplies and expertise. Keep a lookout for the open workshop posting coming your way in September. Meanwhile, come learn the basics of glass painting, have some fun and create beautiful wine glasses!
